Liz and Jonathan find themselves financially overextended. Then Marcus comes into their lives, and at first it seems he will solve all their problems. But entanglements grow increasingly uncomfortable, in this sharp-edged comedy of modern manners and morals.
Annotation:
Real estate leads to a wealth of intrigues, affairs, and romances in Madeleine Wickham's addictively readable A DESIRABLE RESIDENCE. Wickham (who, under her Sophie Kinsella pseudonym, launched the SHOPAHOLIC chick-lit juggernaut) creates a delightfully daffy cast of characters whose plots and motivations collide in unexpected ways. Broke and immoral, Liz is so desperate to sell her house that she has an affair with a sleazy realtor, Marcus, to help close the deal. After she finally rents the house to a young couple, Liz, her husband Jonathan, their teenage daughter, and Marcus all become caught up in a series of lies, schemes, and real estate dreams.Real estate leads to a wealth of intrigues, affairs, and romances in Madeleine Wickham's addictively readable A DESIRABLE RESIDENCE.
